Peer Support Network (PSN)
A way to feel more supported yourself, to help you to support other people.

PSN gives you personal and emotional support by providing a safe and confidential pace to talk about your feelings. It begins with a free Taster event followed by a 3-day training, where you learn a lot
about how you tick emotionally.

You learn through experience, by trying things out. The teaching is informal, with little need for theory or notes. PSN is based on well-established psychological and psychodynamic principles.

When we feel more supported, our self-esteem and confidence increases. We become more effective and productive in all areas of life. Peer support is now recognised as a powerful way to address the problems of anxiety, depresssion and stress. Being able to express feelings safely is proven to be the most effective way to reduce stress.

Skills you learn include:

  • managing emotions
  • keeping clear boundaries
  • building rapport
  • excellent listening
  • giving and receiving feedback
  • working together in pairs
  • handling confidentiality
  • communicating clearly.
Your confidence and self-esteem will grow. You will have stronger boundaries and better ways of handling difficult people and situations. You feel better equipped for your role, so you can give more support to others and feel better supported yourself. After the course you can join the Suffolk PSN network.
More PSN courses and free PSN Taster events will be scheduled in 2017. Contact us for information.
